Fewer prescriptions.
Fewer office visits.
Less trial-and-error.


Your body is unique. Doctors don't know if a blood pressure medication will work until you try it. If it doesn't work, they might add or try another. This trial-and-error costs time and money. Some medications can even make your blood pressure go up.

Geneticure's test looks at 17 genotypes and 11 genes* to determine how your body responds to each medication. Your personalized report helps your doctor prescribe the right medication from the start.

How does it work?


  1. Order a kit

    Purchase a kit online (no prescription required) and we'll get it to your home or office in a few days.

  2. Activate your kit

    Log on to geneticure.com to activate your kit. You will receive instructions on how to complete the process and access your results. Included in your services, a physician will review your information and follow up with questions if needed. The physician will approve the test, if appropriate. If not approved for any reason, you will receive a full refund for your kit purchase.

  3. Swab your cheek

    Follow the simple step-by-step instructions included in your kit. Return your sample to Geneticure in the pre-addressed envelope included in your kit.

  4. Lab analysis

    Once we receive your sample and the independent physician authorization, our CLIA-certified lab will begin to identify the unique markers in your genetic code.

  5. Proprietary algorithm

    Your unique genetic code is analyzed by our patented software and algorithm, supported by hundreds of peer-reviewed papers as well as our own clinical trial data.

  6. Personalized report

    Personalized report

    Approximately 10-15 business days from when our lab receives the sample, you will receive a personalized report that includes prescription recommendations along with the supporting genetic detail. You will also have the opportunity to discuss your results with a genetic counselor at no additional charge.

  7. Talk to your doctor

    Share your Geneticure test with your doctor and they may be able to use it to optimize your prescriptions. It is very important that you do not start or stop taking any medications without first consulting your provider.

What's in my report?


Different blood pressure treatments target different systems in your body. Your DNA can predict which system is most likely to respond to treatment. Your Geneticure report describes the responsiveness of 3 of your body's main organ systems:

  • Cardiac system

    Controls how hard and fast your heart beats

  • Vascular system

    Controls the tightening of blood vessels

  • Renal system

    Controls the absorption of sodium and water in your kidneys
